After Glen raised the issue in another thread I checked my D3300, and sure enough the battery gets warm fairly quickly (after a dozen or so 10s exposures). Whether it's actually the battery that's the source of the heat or the electronics I have no way of knowing as yet. I was shooting in JPEG at full 24MP and using timer and scheduled multiple shots. Also using the LCD a bit. Once I better acquaint myself with the camera, shooting in RAW with LCD off, using bulb mode and preset (rather than auto) white balance should help a bit. But an external battery still couldn't hurt.
